Jeanon “Nonie” Kerr, age 85 of Haslett, passed away on April 9, 2019. She was born in Muskegon on June 13, 1933 to John and Noma (Campbell) Maddox.

Nonie was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Rex. She is survived by daughters, Kelly (Kerr) Borgman and Heather (Ed) Miller; grandchildren, Rex Borgman and Evan Borgman and sisters, Joann Swigart and Janie Goldsmith. Many nieces and nephews also survive.

Nonie was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She had a deep love for her husband of 56 years, Rex and was lost without him. The family finds peace in the fact that they’re together again.

Nonie was known for keeping a clean house and open door, shaved ham sandwiches were always on the menu. She had a serious love for shopping. Rex diligently handled all returns, on one occasion this meant the three refrigerators she had ordered. Other family members also benefitted from the shopping habit, as the girls never went without a new pair of pajamas. Nonie had a wicked sense of humor and treated those that she loved like gold.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Capital Area Humane Society.

Aunt Nonie and Uncle Rex’s house was a staple in our family dynamics. It was a go to for food, beverage, guidance, advice or to catch up on family gossip. The dining room table was a busy place but you could always escape to the basement where there was sure to be a cribbage game going on. Aunt Nonie never ever let you leave hungry. She was the master of ham sandwiches, meatloaf and other staples - Her pasta salad with tuna washed down with a endless supply of iced tea and on special occasions Uncle Rex would treat you with the fresh blue gills that he may have caught that day. Aunt Nonie loved all of us very much and she loved her dogs and everyone else’s dogs - all dogs welcome at Aunt Nonie’s. A Sunday afternoon of 10-15 family members + friends and 5 or 6 dogs was not that uncommon. It was loud and crowded but filled with food and love - Aunt Nonie made sure of that. Aunt Nonie had a big sense of humor, was quick witted, loved jokes including an occasional naughty one.
Kelly, Heather, Rex, Evan and Ed we mourn the loss of your mother and grandmother and we know she loved you very much.
While we mourn her departure from us on earth we know with all of our heart that there is a heck of a party welcoming her to her eternal home. There is comfort in Rex and Nonie together again..
Aunt Nonie will forever have a very special place in our hearts.
Pat and Katie
